Bumping App – Recommendations for Everything

Recommendations for Everything

The Bumping App is a new kind of recommendation app. It will give you recommendations that you value – for everything that you might be interested in. It is like having people you trust always with you and providing you with advice. Whether you are looking for the best bargain, trying to avoid dodgy places, searching for the best restaurant to eat nearby, for a dentist, or even what Christmas presents to buy, the Bumping App is the app that will help you. You will discover fantastic places and products that you didn’t know existed. 

The Bumping App is designed so that you do not only discover recommendations as they are shared, but you can also easily find recommendations for what you are looking for when you are looking for them. Recommendations on the Bumping App are organized, searchable and curated for you. 

The Bumping App is an app that you should not leave home without. 

The Inspiration

I have always thought Reginald Jeeves, a fictional character from the book series by P.G. Wodehouse, was the epitome of great personal service. He was a valet for Bertie Wooster, an upper class English man, who was always trying to help his friends but often found himself entangled in sticky situations. As Bertie’s valet, Jeeves knew all the quirks and idiosyncrasies of Bertie. He knew how Bertie liked his coffee and eggs; he knew when Bertie wanted to read the newspaper and which sections he liked; and he even helped Bertie with his dress sense (or lack of). Whenever Bertie had a question or needed to find something, Jeeves knew what was right for him. He even helped Bertie get out of those sticky situations – even without Bertie asking.

I have always thought it would be so great to have a Jeeves in my life. A trusted, level-headed person who knows what I like, would give me recommendations on practically anything in life, would always look out for me, and would of course clean up after me. Unfortunately, I cannot afford a Jeeves even if he existed so I created the Bumping App.

Like a Personal Valet Providing Recommendations for Everything

The Bumping App is not a personal valet service, but, like a personal valet, it provides recommendations curated just for you when you need them. It is like having a Jeeves with you all the time except, instead of an individual, a community of people is at your service. The community members, or Bumpies as we like to call them, know your interests, values and lifestyle because they are like you. They go to places you go to. Read similar topics you read. Buy similar styles of clothing…. OK, so they are not entirely like Jeeves, but they could save you from getting into sticky situations!

Bumpies can give you recommendations on anything that might interest you whether it is advice on your outfits, what to buy, where to go, or what to eat – essentially, recommendations for everything! They are always excited to show you latest fashions, new grooming techniques for puppies – whatever interests you – even without you asking! Take them out with you as you walk around the city and you would wonder how you survived going anywhere without your Bumpies. Bumpies are your local communities. No matter where you go, they are likely to know people on the street, at every store, in every business, and get you connected to the right people. The Bumping App provides recommendations for everything – anything you are interested in.

The Bumping App is designed to be fun, but it is not just a social app. It will give you trustworthy recommendations on products, businesses and services that you may find difficult to get elsewhere. For example, if you are looking for a dentist, a chiropractor, a gynecologist, or even a handyman, the Bumping App will provide you with recommendations you can trust – simply ask your Bumpies.


Bumping App is simple to use!

Simply join communities that resonate with your interests, values and lifestyle, and, when you are looking for recommendations, see if your community members have already recommended what you are looking for. If not, simply ask!

Why the name “Bumping App”?

The Bumping App is not designed to be used like other social apps. In other social apps, users tend to browse their friends’ posts during “downtimes” – when they are at home or in the subway, for example. The Bumping App, on the other hand, is designed to provide you with recommendations for everything in the context of your surroundings: when you need recommendations; when you are near places of interest; and, of course, when you are at home or in the subway! One of the experiences you get from using the Bumping App is like bumping into one of your Bumpies on the street – they want to share with you all the coolest things around – hence the name “Bumping App”.
